Market Times

Just like forex markets, the commodities market is not always open. Times are referenced in ET (New York time).

Closed all day


Open from 6 PM

Additionally, there are the following holidays where market are closed:

  1. January 1st - 2nd

  2. December 25th - 27th


As there price of commodities can change while the market is closed, this can result in gaps, where the market opens at a different price than the price it closed at last time it was open.

Due to this, we cannot guarantee stop losses, which means you have to be careful with keeping trades open while the market is closed. It could be liquidated because of a big gap in the opposite direction once market opens. It could also result in a bigger win than you initially planned for, as volatility works on both sides. Please take this into consideration when using high leverage.

Reduced Leverage/Increased Spread

The max leverage is temporarily reduced and spread is temporarily increased during:

  • Major USD news events, from 1 hour before to 10 minutes after the event.

  • Market closing, starting 30 minutes before the market closes.
